    this jdm d15 is pretty popular now
    will it work in my 98ex (d16y8) as a direct swap?
    will i need a harness or ecu?
    axles or tranny?
    please let me know....my motor is shot!

    Why would you swap practically the same hp motor? There is no point unless yours is blown.

    D15b = 130hp
    D16y8 = 127hp

    Just use the money you would have used for the motor and buy some parts for your y8 if you are set on staying with the sohc slamma. If not save alittle more cash for a dohc swap. How is you motor "shot"? It is a 98 right. My 95 z6 that just turned 111000 miles still purrs like a kitten.

    IMO you'd do better to just get a direct replacement, or move up to a B.
